What’s up with the ChapStick® Challenge?

If you’re active on social media, you’ve probably seen the viral videos circulating. But for those who don’t know, the rules of the ChapStick® challenge are simple: try to guess what kind of ChapStick® someone is wearing by any means possible. That entails getting up close and personal and smelling, kissing, and sometimes licking another person’s lips!

If you’re inspired to try the ChapStick® challenge yourself after watching, upload your own video with the hashtag #ChapStickChallenge and be sure to tag us @chapstick!

Best ChapStick® Challenge Flavors

As you can see, the ChapStick® challenge is not as easy as it sounds! When you’re ready to take on the challenge for yourself, give it a go with some of our most exciting flavors that are sure to fool your partner.

  • Pink Grapefruit: This bright, citrus flavor is the perfect unexpected flavor to start with. In our opinion, Pink Grapefruit  is the most underrated citrus fruit! Plus, this lip butter is part of our natural line, which features naturally-sourced ingredients like mango butter, avocado butter, and shea butter.
  • Cotton Candy: Fool your challenge partner with Cotton Candy, a sweet and sugary fan-favorite flavor! Cotton Candy evokes the feeling of summertime at your favorite amusement park or state fair. And if the sweet flavor doesn’t win you over, the bright pink tube certainly will! 
  • Pumpkin Pie: Bring some festive cheer to your ChapStick® Challenge with our Pumpkin Pie flavor! Whether you’re taking this seasonal flavor out for a spin during the fall or at another time of year, this sweet-and-spicy flavor is a classic that never gets old. 
  • Vanilla Latte: Another flavor from our holiday collection, Vanilla Latte is a delicious way to enjoy your morning coffee any time of day. In the mood for a cup at 8pm? No problem—luckily this ChapStick® flavor has no caffeine so you can enjoy a latte right before bed without disrupting your sweet dreams.
  • Mango Sunrise: Take yourself on a tropical vacation without leaving home with our Mango Sunrise flavor. This sweet and tangy flavor is part of our Tropical Paradise collection and one swipe will instantly transport you to the beach.
  • Sweet Watermelon: Bring a little summer sunshine to your day with Sweet Watermelon ChapStick. This flavor from our I ♥ Summer collection is a fruity and juicy treat for your lips to enjoy all year round.
  • Green Tea Mint: Stump your ChapStick® challenge partner with a tricky hybrid flavor: Green Tea Mint! This minty, herbal flavor is part of our natural line, which means that it’s made from naturally-sourced ingredients and, like all of our lip balms, is paraben- and cruelty-free.
